Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Archer delightfully twists historical romance convention in her winning debut. Lady Olivia Xavier, an inveterate reader of American dime-novel westerns, abruptly finds herself living one when Will Coffin, a Colorado cowboy who's come to England in 1883 to seek relatives, saves her from hired thugs sent by a nefarious business rival, George Pryce, who's after her late husband's brewery. In short order, Olivia hires Will as her personal bodyguard, inviting him to live in her sprawling London home. Olivia's beauty and "gumption" impress the reluctant cowboy, who's shocked and stymied by the strictures of Victorian England. Olivia, in turn, thrills at Will's lust, good humor and steely resolve, honed over years of life on the range. As George's attacks on the brewery escalate, Will and Olivia wind up camping out cowboy-style in the countryside and orchestrating a final showdown between heroes and villains. Archer deftly balances diverse cultures in this fast-paced, lighthearted romp that, like a Wild West shoot-out in a staid English drawing room, both tickles and thrills. (Feb.)

    Sexy & Fun!

    Zoe Archer's debut novel is a refreshing and delightful read. Lady Olivia Xavier, the beautiful heroine, will not disappoint romance readers. She is a strong, independent businesswoman who frowns and struggles with the dictates of Victorian society and forms her own path. Underneath, she longs for romance and adventure, reading dime store cowboy novels in her spare time. Will Coffin, a 'real' American cowboy, arrives in England to try and locate his lost family. He is a strong, sexy male who is attracted to and admires Olivia. He comes to her rescue to save her brewery, but also gives her the romance she has longed for. The romance is fun and sexy definitely an 8 to 10 on the sensual scale. Zoe Archer really pulls off the blend of the Wild West American & the Society English Lady. There is suspense and many fun scenes. Unlike some romances, you do not walk away thinking any of these characters are flighty. I really enjoyed this story and look forward to future books by Zoe Archer.

    Absolutely delightful! Will is sexy, sweet and so funny. He demonstrates to Lady X that American cowboys know how to handle their horse, their firearms AND their women and society be damned!

    A terrific Victorian romance

    In 1883 London, Colorado cowboy Will Coffin intercedes and rescues Lady Olivia Xavier from assault of three punks. She thinks the hunk who saved her from Lord Pryce¿s hired thugs could have been the front cover model of the western dime novels she loves to read.---- Lady Olivia hires Will to help her save the brewery that she inherited from her late husband her unscrupulous rival Lord Pryce will do anything to either destroy or preferably steal her firm. Meanwhile Will has come to England to find his family here. He has no plans to socialize with people he does not understand nor is able to communicate with yet somehow he and Lady X who speaks a foreign language that sort of sounds like English, communicate through their hearts. Though the lady and the cowboy are in love, their respective social classes are more than just oceans apart.----- This is a terrific Victorian romance that focuses on cultural differences between a tea toting English aristocrat and a cow poking American cowboy. The story line emphasizes the Grand Canyonesque gaps that the loving pair must surmount if they want a permanent relationship a concept both desire and fear. Humor via stereotyping presumptions add to the fun as Olivia cannot understand how he can be gentle instead of a rough hooligan like in the dime novels while Will struggles with how his English rose can be understanding and kind instead of haughty as he assumed all aristocratic ladies pretend a loftiness that make dudes like him feel like sewage. Fans will enjoy Zoe Archer's superb historical driven by two obviously in love characters that live light years apart in lifestyles.------ Harriet Klausner
